motor, the papa john didn't build papa john pizza, ray crock didn't build mcdonald's. that bill gates didn't build microsoft. go on the list. joe and his colleagues didn't build this enterprise. to say something like that is not just foolishness, it's insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in america. it's wrong. >> eric: he wasn't done there. >> believing in america means believing in the principles upon which the nation was founded. i do. i will keep the principles aloft. we will fight for them. we will keep america on the earth and bring back the strength that provides a bright future for us and for our children. >> eric: you know, i had a hunch yesterday, that the antibusiness comment would come back to haunt obama. just a matter of time before romney said enough class warfare and enough demonizing hard-working americans and enough for the damn socialist

you want them to boo? attack after attack. >> dana: maybe that was the tipping point or straw that broke the camel's back. i don't know. i'll take a guess, though. what it was, they can call him all sort of things across the country. offending the sense of entrepreneur spirit and hard work that people put in businesses to build them. the purpose of road and school, we all benefit from them. there is an individual risk you take if you want to start a business. my business was small. i remember sleepless nights thinking am i doing the right thing? i have to get the paperwork done. my business was nothing compared to what other people have done. >> greg: your at-home strip club? >> dana: just me and the mirror. didn't generate a lot of money.

the independent voters -- >> bob: you have to learn to be an american? >> andrea: that is not exactly what he said. >> bob: that is exactly what he said. don't tell me it's not what he said. >> andrea: open the paper and see more women are the breadwinners and more people opening businesses. people will look at this and say that's not the american way. government knows better than the individual. >> bob: that is not what obama was saying in the first place. >> andrea: he said get on the ground and kiss the road. >> bob: he said a lot of people helped you on the way up and a lot of people did. i gave you example of the three puck sesful americans -- three successful americans. >> dana: who made money to pay taxes to build the roads? it's a chicken and egg argument. >> bob: gates said without the space program he couldn't have built the p.c. what do you say about that? >> dana: without english class i could haven't been the press secretary. >> bob: su n.b.a. said it's the american way and i wish

11:28 pm
interesting and should be concern to obama. not the least of which is michigan. romney was, you know, that is, he is considered the romney family. that is his home state of many. but that is the one he claims. the other thing, as michigan goes, so goes ohio. ohio is a critical here. the three states i think they need to concentrate on are ohio, where they think they can win the race. ohio, florida, michigan. but the other states that are interesting to me is that -- by the way, romney has got to win one of those two states. virginia and north carolina, both of which obama won in the last election. they have now become more democratic, because of the vast increase in the number of hispanic voters. so with that in mind, i think that is the reason he is ahead in virginia. despite what they say, he is ahead in ohio. >> dana: i want to hear from rove about michigan and come

11:31 pm
i do agree with rove. i think romney will win new hampshire. michigan, why is michigan important? it's a money pit. when you run as an incumbent, you don't want to spend money and resources in states you should have to win easily. this happened in 2004. remember with bush and kerry. bush forced kerry to spend money in pennsylvania. i think states to watch besides michigan are wisconsin, indiana, ohio. these are states that have historically trended democratic. now republicans in the south when bush was running, the strategy was went south of the mason dixon line and pick up other states like florida. this time around, i think obama will have to go on defense and spend money on states he does not think he was going to have to. i think romney is going to be able to play off of -- >> dana: greg hasn't had a chance to comment. before we get to greg, can i mention one thing? four states where the obama campaign is not spending resources. nebraska, north dakota, missouri and montana. all of those four become pickup state for possible
